“Our human condition is vulnerable in itself. Sharing your vulnerability is a strength. Hiding it is weakness. Denying it is a mistake.”
We have faced at times moments of vulnerability. Moments where we feel angry and sad. Times where we want to shut people down or run away. It’s not easy. And it takes courage and patience to open up and share our feelings.
People are conditioned so they feel ashamed of feeling bad. We are afraid to be seen as weak or inadequate. By trying to avoid talking about what is important. Each person feels not only fearful and guarded, but alone. Our experience is that by talking openly about our vulnerability. We have helped others to cope with their own vulnerabilities as well as our own.
It’s very important to share what’s going on inside us with others. By opening up, we allow others to open too, and we connect.
